The field of Orthodontics focuses on regulating the position of teeth in the jaw, and on the growth and development of the jaws. The section provides training for orthodontists.
What does orthodontics do?
Orthodontics deals with dental regulation. With the help of all kinds of braces teeth and jaws are properly set. This is done by 'orthodontists'. An orthodontist is a specialized dentist who, after completing his or her studies in dentistry, followed a 4-year course in dental regulation. ACTA also trains orthodontists.

If you need braces, the dentist will usually refer you to an orthodontist. But a referral is not always necessary. You can also come to us for braces without a referral from the dentist. You can make an appointment via Appointment and Information: (020) 598 0380. You will then receive a call for an intake interview within a few weeks. Then we will discuss with you which treatment is most suitable. The Orthodontics section generally does not have a waiting list.
Would you like to know whether your treatment with another orthodontist is going in the right direction, or if you are not completely satisfied with a proposed treatment? At ACTA you can request a Second Opinion. Your teeth will be examined by an independent orthodontist from ACTA, after which you will receive a report of your conversation with our orthodontist. To make an appointment for a second opinion, please call Appointment and Information: (020) 598 0380.
Moving or canceling appointments
